Is this a "shopping post"? Are there interesting handicrafts, artwork, antiques, or other items that people typically buy there?

Honey, raki, handmade filigree jewelry, olive wood. - Aug 2, 2015
Wood carvings and chests. Woven wool rugs. Local artwork. Lacework. I wouldn't say Albania has a huge souvenir market (and a lot of the stuff is imported garbage), but there are a few very nice things you can pick up. - May 18, 2013
Antique dowry chests (beautiful!) Venecian Masks (The guy who makes them has a factory here where you can pick them up for cheaper prices than in Venice) Tablecloths, and other random things - Dec 27, 2012
Antiques and paintings from Kruje - Oct 1, 2011
Handmade wooden chests, kilim carpets. - Mar 31, 2008
